why do we want to know about diuretics
Why do we want to know about diuretics?
  • What do kidneys do?
  • What can go wrong?
  • Interventions that can be used
  • how do they work?
  • Effects, side effects
functions of the kidney
Functions of the kidney?
  • Excretion of waste products
  • regulation of salt and electrolyte content
  • and volume of extra -cellular fluid
  • acid -base balance

How?
  • Several hundred litres of plasma filtered/day
  • filtrate - very little protein/protein bound substances
  • 99% of sodium is reabsorbed, some substances secreted
  • 1.5 litres voided as urine
  • Diuretics increase salt and water excretion
why diuretics
Why diuretics?
  • important group of drugs employed for their effects on the kidney to enhance salt and water excretion (only when needed)
  • when used: heart failure, other causes of salt and water retention (renal failure, liver failure), hypertension
variety of compounds with diuretic activity
Variety of compounds with diuretic activity
  • Xanthines - theophylline, caffeine
  • osmotic diuretics - urea
  • carbonic-anhydrase inhibitors
  • thiazides
  • loop diuretics
  • aldosterone antagonists
  • potassium sparing diuretics
how do they work
How do they work?
  • Direct effect on cells of the nephron..
    • where most of the active and selective solute reabsorption occurs
      • ascending loop of Henle
      • early distal tubule
      • collecting tubules and ducts
  • OR
  • modifying the content of the filtrate by their presence
loop diuretics rang and dale p361 363
Loop diuretics (Rang and Dale p361-363)
  • Frusemide, bumetanide, piretanide
    • act on thick segment of ascending loop
    • inhibit NaCl transport OUT of tubule by inhibiting Na+/K+/2Cl- carrier (co-transporter) in luminal membrane ( acting on chloride binding site)
    • Reduces the hypertonic interstitial area in the medull, so reducing water re-absorption
    • increases Na+ solute concentration in the distal tubule which is exchanged for K+ andH+ (hypokalemia and alkalosis)
    • Can increase the excreted sodium from 1% to 15% of filtrate
    • Also reduce peripheral vascular resistance
loop diuretics
Loop diuretics
  • Kinetics
    • oral and IV preparations
    • bound to plasma protein, secreted into tubule
    • metabolised by the liver ( P450)
    • act within 1 hour
    • half life about 90 minutes; longer in renal failure
    • duration - 3-6 hours (Lasts Six Hours – Lasix)
loop diuretics10
Loop diuretics
  • Effects
    • pass urine – in large amounts!
  • Side effects
    • electrolyte depletion
    • Hypovolemia
    • other reactions rare
  • Main Use
    • Heart failure – particularly acute left ventricular failure
    • Hepatic cirrhosis
    • Nephrotic syndrome
    • Renal failure
thiazide diuretics
thiazide diuretics
  • bendrofluazide, hydrochlorothiazide, indapamide
    • act on distal convoluted tubule
    • bind to chloride site of Na+/Cl co–transport system and inhibit action
    • decrease active Na resorption
    • decrease water resorption
    • changes in Ca, magnesium and uric acid
thiazide diuretcis
thiazide diuretcis
  • kinetics
    • rapidly absorbed orally
    • secreted into the tubule
    • maximal effect 4- 6 hours, duration 8-12 hours
thiazide diuretics13
thiazide diuretics
  • effects
    • increase urine output
  • side effects
    • electrolyte disturbances
    • increased cholesterol
    • impotence
    • hypersensitivity reactions (rare)
  • Main uses
    • hypertension
    • mild heart failure
aldosterone antagonists
aldosterone antagonists
  • spirololactone
    • inhibits action of aldosterone (intracellular receptor binding anatagonism), increases sodium and decreases potassium secretion
  • kinetics
    • well absorbed orally, active metabolite half life of 16 hours
  • effects
    • limited diuresis
  • Main uses – heart failure and cirrhosis
  • side effects
    • Hyperkalemia, estrogen like effects
other potassium sparing diuretics
other potassium sparing diuretics
  • Triamterene, amiloride
  • act on collecting ducts
  • inhibit Na resorption, decrease potassium excretion
  • effects
    • limited diuresis
  • side effects
    • electrolyte disturbances
clinical choices
clinical choices
  • Uses:
    • cardiac failure
    • hypertension
    • fluid overload
  • NOT for everyone with oedema (eg from venous insufficiency)
  • acute versus chronic
  • evidence of benefit
